Russian espionage incident in the Czech Republic prompts V4 solidarity

In a statement on Wednesday, V4 foreign minister expressed their support of Czechia after Prague expelled Russian diplomats.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis announced the expulsion 18 Russian diplomats as suspicion has arisen that they had had a role in the explosion at an ammunition warehouse in the south-eastern town of Vrbetice in 2014.  After the Russian diplomats were declared personae non grata, Moscow retaliated by expelling in turn 20 Czech foreign service officers.  

The foreign ministers of Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, the Czech Republic’s allies in the Visegrád Group, declared in a statement that their countries “stand ready to further strengthen our resilience against subversive actions at both national level and together with our NATO allies and within EU. The Foreign Ministers of Poland, Slovakia and Hungary express solidarity with recent steps taken by our close partner, ally and neighbour, Czechia,” the statement released on April 21 said.
